Attraction details
Owner description: Day trip to Egmont Key, off St. Petersburg, Florida. Watch dolphins jump and play in the surf behind our mono-hull boat. They jump, twist, & spin so close you can almost touch them! Our boat stays with you the entire 2 1/2 hour stay on the island. Explore this tropical island with its abundant wildlife and ruins of a Spanish-American War fort. Snorkel gear is provided for those wishing to snorkel the sunken ruins. Reservations recommended by calling.

Our Company chartered this boat for an outing with our Sales people this past May. It was a great setting to get everyone together to get to know each other. Captain Randy and Captain Frank arranged to have drinks and snacks available and ready for us on the boat and took us wherever we wanted to go. Eric was a wealth of knowledge and made sure we saw plenty of Dolphins playing in the wake of the boat. We received really great feedback from the attendees who were surprised at how much fun this outing was. It is a great alternative to a golf afternoon where you really only get to network in groups of four. We would definitely charter this boat for a company event again.

Spent the day with my 2 boys and Captain Randy and his crew. We had so much fun. My boys are 8 and 10 and they had a blast..from jumping off the side of the boat over and over again to them learning alot about the critters in the sea while we were snorkeling because they wouldn't pick things up but the crew did..they let us hold urchins and look at the crabs, pointed out turtles and manatees and cautioned us about the sting rays..gave us great advice on what to do while on the island and found the DOLPHINS!!!It was so amazing..they had dolphins jumping in our wake several times while on the way back. They made sure everyone got to get close to get pictures and some of us got videos. They crew knew my boys names and were so nice to all of us! I highly recommend this trip over all the others we checked into..I will definately do this again next time we are in this area! Thank you so much Captain Randy and crew!!

We've done Snorkeling/Dolphin tours before. But, this one was, BY FAR, the absolute best we've been on. Captain Randy and his crew were very knowledgable and fun. I will definitley be back to see them and do this again. I would highly recommend Tropical Island Getaway to anyone serious about having a great time.

We traveled to St. Pete for spring break with our 8 year old and 11 year old. We had a great time. The trip out and back was great. The dolphins showed up just like you see in the pictures. I would sit in the back of the boat if you want the best view but they swim very close to the boat. The island was fun to explore. Probably the weak point was the snorkeling. The site we went to was a stretch of sea grass about 30-40 yards off the island. Not much to see. It was the kids first time so they thought it was fun but the snorkeling itself does not compare to other snorkeling trips we have gone on. Otherwise well worth the money. Crew was nice and attentive.

We just got back from our day of snorkeling, seacrhing for shells and having a great day with family and friends. Our crew Chris and Tim were great making sure that everyone had a great time and went home with Sand dollars. I would recommend this as a fun day that kept everyone busy and happy. I would just caution you to make sure that your children and you are comfortable in the water before you jump off the side of the boat to snorkel. So pack a lunch and enjoy the ride.
The chidren are already asking if they can go again the next time we come for a visit!
